The AAP on Sunday changed its candidate from the Fatehgarh Sahib Lok Sabha seat for the third time by announcing Rajya Sabha MP and former Punjab Congress president Shamsher Singh Dullo’s son Bandeep Singh Dullo as its fresh nominee.
Bandeep, a Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee secretary, joined AAP in New Delhi and replaced his mother, former chief parliamentary secretary Harbans Kaur Dullo.
Earlier, the party had given ticket to Baljinder Singh Chudhan but replaced him with Harbans Kaur after she joined AAP on April 16.
It is learnt that the decision to field Bandeep was taken after the party found his mother ineffective in the poll campaign.
Bandeep said his mother stood by Amarinder Singh when Rajinder Kaur Bhattal tried to dislodge him in 2004. “The party had promised us a Lok Sabha ticket when none of our family member was allotted ticket in the 2017 assembly polls,” he said.
